    1983 K5, locked front and rear, built mouse 300 hp- 325 ft lbs, 17.5 x 40 inch tires, six point cage, custom hand built front and rear bumpers/skid plates....by far the most favorite vehicle I've owned. Built ground up by ME ! Now owned by my son who enjoys it as I did.

    Followed by the lowly 2 dr 1964 1/2 Dodge Dart GT 3:58 rear end, 4 spd Hurst, two barrel intake and factory headers.

    * I quess that after viewing the others choices.....mine are from which I've owned! No pipe dreams.

    The pipe dream would be a 70's model XKE 12 cylinder!

    Just for flat out performance coupled with extraordinary beauty, I'd have to go with a EB 16.4 Veyron Sang Noir

    From the site:

    With its 16-cylinder four-wheel drive, the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 may well be the most sophisticated production vehicle of all times.
    Most of the components tucked beneath its hood are ingenious innovations that were formerly only deemed possible by visionaries like Ferdinand Piëch.

    Boasting a maximum speed of more than 400 km per hour, the Veyron is unmatched in the super sports category. It offers a total of 1,001 HP, and its ample power reserves even at high speeds are the fabric of dreams for luxury-class limousines: for a constant speed of 250 km/h, the Veyron only needs 270-280 HP. This means that the seven-gear clutch transmission works with a torque of up to 1,250 Newton meters. The Electronic Stability Program (ESP) ensures the necessary flexibility and maneuverability at any speed. The Veyron reaches velocities that would literally lift the car off the ground – if it weren’t for its ingenious aerodynamics, which keeps it firmly on the road even at full speed. Adjusting the back spoiler, reducing ground clearance, opening and closing the lids – it all adds to the perfect balance between propulsion and downforce. Such a super sports car may not seem to be brought to a halt easily, but the Veyron’s ceramic brakes slow it down faster than it can accelerate. While it takes this exceptional car only 2.5 seconds to go from 0 to 100 km/h, it needs even less time – a mere 2.3 seconds – to come to a standstill from 100 (reference point). To reduce the risk of injuries in accidents, Bugatti had a Formula 1 safety concept adapted for the Veyron. All these technical details combine to make the Veyron a truly exceptional super sports car.


    Design Your Own Veyron




    But for a special night out on the town, I'd like one of these.

    Its pretty cool, but nothing can touch the E46 mark aesthetically in my opinion.

    Have you an idea how unreliable old Ferraris are? Haha. Best keep it parked in the garage and brag about the visuals.

    Don't drive Ferrari that around a lakeside. You'll eat bugs.

    Ferrari didn't even have seatbelts in 1958, until Saab made the first standard use of them shortly after. Only Ford offered them as an option from 1955, until late 1958. Volvo started the first 3-point seatbelt -- proper for high performance cars -- in 1959.

    I am much more practical about cars.

    Supercars are sexy, but they are far more a pain to maintain and even drive around. The gawkers are everywhere, standing around your car when you are inside somewhere, doing your business. Envy of others also brings vandalism problems, such as keying the paint.

    Even Jeremy Clarkson of of Top Gear says that the only people that wear Ferrari (and other supercar-brand) accessories/clothing are people who don't own or drive them.

    Another important question: has communism/statist socialist culture ever produced a good car?

    In light of others ignoring massive fuel, maintenance, and insurance costs ...
    the only way to have true respect of others on the road? Drive a Euclid (but I'm not sure that's legal). It will turn any street into your personal parade, every time. Wink

    ... Just a warning about Lamborghini and other exotics. They are terrible for reliability, and blockbuster expensive for maintenance. It can easily cost US$7000 for just a single oil change and point to point greasing in a Gallardo. Also required are electronic ECU (Engine Control Units) to be able to read and reprogram/reflash your exotic car's engine performance settings from time to time, which need to be at least inspected now and then, adding at least 4000 more US dollars to your car's maintenance bill. Tire sets (4) cost 1200 to 1600 dollars, not including labor. These are just the start of the list of regular billings added to the original purchase costs.

    ... Addams family sounds, common among Lambos and other wing-doored cars:



    It's basically this concept in action:



    Yeah, the Euclid is bad too. Laughing

    I used to like cars until I bought my first car. They are a pain in the butt. My family and friends have especially bad luck with German car costs in maintenance.

    Only just noticed this reply, haven't been on here for some time. I know old Ferrari's are temperamental but my criteria for favourite cars didn't include practicality, or affordability.
    The '58 TR is just so wonderful to look at and idiosyncratic in design. The Agera is the pinnacle of the hypercar world for me.
    For examples of the more mundane on my wish list, Citroen 2CV, Citroen DS, Renault 4, Trabant, Ford Escort Mk1 and Mk2, Saab 96 V4, the original Mini. Slightly more upmarket, Mercedes 600.

    My all time utter fantasy wish cars would be all Bugatti's, type 35B, Type 51, type 57 Aérolithe and type 41 Royale. Almost certainly never going to happen of course and I am well aware of just how fussy old Bugatti's are, but they are incredibly wonderful pieces of engineering art.
